Salomon Freeski TV visits a 'ghost town'

By XGames.com

In this fourth episode of Salomon Freeski TV's seventh season, which dropped on Tuesday, skiers Josh Daiek, Mike Henitiuk and Kieran Nikula take a trip to Barkerville, British Columbia, an old mining town that once flourished in the 1800s.

Now the village, located in the foothills of the Cariboo mountains, is a ghost town, with nothing but deserted mining equipment and desolate, old shacks. But covered in a few feet of fresh snow, the place becomes a historic stomping ground for skiers.
